Omnia's Agriculture division comprises Omnia Fertilizer and Omnia Specialities and is the market leader in its field in southern Africa. The division has its main production facilities in Sasolburg supported by an extensive logistics infrastructure footprint across South Africa and the African continent. In addition to its large-scale production facilities, the division has a strong agronomic unit that plays a key role in advising farmers on how to improve the various aspects of farming practice and providing them with the specific tools to accomplish this.
We create value for our investors, customers and employees by producing and selling ammonium nitrate-based, chemically-granulated compounds, liquids and speciality fertilizer and fertilizer blends, supported by a range of value-added and risk mitigation services and knowledge.
Our competitive advantage lies in Nutriology®, or what we call the 'science of growing'. This is the core of our business philosophy and involves more than just selling fertilizer to farmers - it is about optimising yield and crop quality for maximum return while reducing farming and environmental risk. Achieving this entails becoming intricately involved in the producers' businesses to better understand their objectives and targets. Nutriology® also includes leading-edge research and development that results in the development of new products, services farming practices. The Omnia Nutriology® brand is highly regarded in the regional market and strongly supports managements vision of creating wealth through knowledge.
